Reg was born on May 1, 1942 in Pottstown to the late Wm. Holland Wunder and the late Lorraine (Lewin) Hunsicker. After graduating from Spring Ford High School in 1960, he became employed by Diamond Glass for a few years, and later found his niche as a Service Technician for Oehlert Brothers Inc. in Royersford.
